Casera Credit Union Members Approve the Recommended Merger with Access Credit Union
Casera Credit Union is pleased to announce that its members approved a recommendation by the Board of Directors to merge with Access Credit Union. Voting took place between November 10 and 15, 2022, and the results were announced at a virtual special meeting of members on November 15, 2022.
A majority of two-thirds of votes cast was required to allow the merger to go forward. In the vote, 78.33 percent of voting members favoured the merger (1,080 votes were cast — 846 in favour and 234 opposed).
The favourable vote means that the two credit unions will unite under the Access Credit Union name and brand on July 1, 2023.
Under the Access banner, the credit union will have more than $10 billion in assets, over 168,000 members, more than 900 employees, and 56 branch locations. The organization is well-positioned to operate effectively in today's competitive marketplace and offer a flexible patronage program to reward members for their loyalty.
